  • We made the Trek of the ridges in family (11-14 years) it takes 6 hours with the poses but well worth the money. Great view and wild beauty. To make absolutely. Short stop at the source of ferruginous to drink. Good ride

  • A superb and ballads for all. Allow 6 - 7 hours for the full tour of the peaks with pictures and picnic breaks. A few people at the bottom of the Valley and before the climb to the Puy de Sancy (upon arrival of the chairlift Besse), but rather quiet along the way.

  • I'll say only one thing: will discover the Valley of sculptures. Beautiful Valley offering the possibility of hiking on the ridges or wander in the Valley.
